Jordan has already executed two prisoners in retaliation for ISIS's brutal killing of fighter pilot Lt. Moaz al-Kasasbeh.
In a move signaling the prisoners were about to die, a convoy early Wednesday morning headed to a prison where Jordan holds executions, according to Sky News. The convoy left hours later presumably with the bodies of attempted suicide bomber Sajida al-Rishawi and Al-Qaeda member Ziyad Karboli.
Shot down in December and captured by ISIS, Kasasbeh had been part of the militants' negotiations for a prisoner swap. But ISIS released a video Tuesday that may have been shot several weeks ago of the pilot being burned alive. (Video via CNN / ISIS)
